Meeting Halfway starts a new project. If you have a sweet tooth, or are simply interested in cooking and culinary traditions, then this will be perfect for you…
Christmas is just around the corner and, of course, there’s a lot of baking going on. I would like to take this opportunity to give you four of my favourite recipes.
An irresistible dessert to add to your bucket list!
Today we are talking about a delicious dish, especially recommended for cheese lovers…The exquisite fondue!

In the following Meeting Halfway article we reveal the recipe for chocolate salami: with both Portuguese and Italian origins, it owes its name to its appearance, which is reminiscent of a cured meat but it is actually a cold dessert made of biscuits and chocolate. Very quick and easy to prepare, it only requires a few ingredients and is perfect for hot summer days since no cooking is required.

Italy is appreciated throughout the world because of the quality of its food and it being the native country of a series of simple but irresistible delicacies: pizza, icecream, pasta… We are not talking about stereotypes, these dishes represent an essential part of an Italian’s diet and their use in cooking follows rules which seem obvious to the Italians – but are not for the rest of the world!
We find ourselves in very unusual times: as we know, because of coronavirus, quarantine continues. So, despite the arrival of spring and Easter festivities, we have to conduct ourselves responsibly and stay home. Just yesterday, Easter Sunday, I was thinking about happy moments from my Erasmus period in Seville, back in 2017; a time when everyday life flowed normally and we were free to go out, travel and explore the whole world whilst coming into contact with other cultures. Remembering the past, I decided to spend my afternoon cooking milk torrijas, a traditional Spanish recipe of the Easter period.
In my last article, I presented some of Brussels’ hotspots that you must see. But if you get to spend several days in Brussels, it’s worthwhile to have a closer look at some of the districts the city has to offer.
